Cabardes is a wine appellation in the Languedoc Roussillon region of France in the area just north of the Canal du Midi behind the striking town of Carcassonne. It was proclaimed in 1999.
The Cabardes appellation takes its influence from both the south through the presence of Syrah and Grenache and the west through grape varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Fer Servadou.
It is a relatively small appellation with about 400 hectares planted to vines out of a possible area of some 2000 hectares. The main type of wine produced here is red although rose wines are also made by some domaines.
